Hey everyone! Happy almost long weekend! Can I get a "JEAH!!"? That's exactly what Ryan Lochte is saying because it looks like he'll be cashing in big time after becoming somewhat of a celebrity after the 2012 Olympic Games. Well, he's got the sexy look, he's got the sexy body, he's endearingly awkward and somewhat of a douche ... sounds like the makings of a great new reality TV show star!
Shockingly, that's exactly what he and his management team are thinking too. On top of trying to get spots on Dancing With the Stars and The Bachelor and having a cameo on 90210, he's reportedly talking to E! about coming out with his own show. WOW! Crazy. Insane! This is the most surprising thing I've heard all week.
His synopsis? "Pretty much, they follow me on my normal day, just training, doing my own fashion line," he described.
Errr ... sounds ... enthralling, doesn't it?
I mean, don't get me wrong, I'd watch just to see him deliver classic one-liners like this one. He can be such an unintentionally hilarious trainwreck at times. I guess that's him being him? Lord only knows what that means -- but he's got me intrigued and entertained enough to tune in. Especially if he happens to run into other famous folks like Prince Harry and race them around in a Las Vegas pool. I'd watch the shit out of that.
And I can't wait to see what Ryan has to say about "fashion." Will it be a line of American flag grills? T-shirts with "JEAH!" printed on them? Gold- and diamond-encrusted shavers? It'll be interesting to see what his team he comes up with to unleash upon the fashion world. I'm already scared. Swimming, designing, Ryan Lochte shirtless ... let's hope that he and E! come up with a deal for his new show ASAP.
Here's an entire NINE-minute interview with the man himself. Unfortunately from the neck up.
After seeing this, we could also come up with awesome Ryan Lochte reality show drinking games too. Example: Take a shot each time Ryan says "uh" or "um." Where's the tequila!
What do you think of Ryan Lochte's reality show? Would you watch?
